The former casino of Lipótváros was built between 1883 and 1885, in a beautiful Neo­Baroque style following the plans of Vilmos Freund. At that time it was known as the an aristocratic club for entertainment not a casino in terms of gambling. From after its completion until World War II the Palace served as a place of culture, supported many young artists, even Bartók, Kodály and Dvorák played in its first class concert hall. After the war, since 1951 the building has been carrying out the cultural programs of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
